Emdeon Announces Expanded Features to Emdeon Office Suite



Solution now includes functionality to address Meaningful Use, automated statements, electronic payments and analytics reporting

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Emdeon Inc. (NYSE: EM), a leading provider of healthcare revenue and payment cycle management and clinical information exchange solutions, has expanded the capabilities of its Emdeon Office Suite(TM). A web-based solution, Emdeon Office is well established with healthcare providers as a tool for conducting an array of financial and administrative transactions, including verification of patient eligibility and benefits and claims submission, management and tracking. The new features include a Meaningful Use portal that helps simplify clinical processes as well as additional financial features such as statement automation, electronic patient payments and analytics reporting.

According to Philip Hardin, executive vice president of provider services for Emdeon, the recently launched additions to Emdeon Office help healthcare providers navigate changes in the healthcare industry--and in their businesses.

"Healthcare today is significantly different than it was ten years ago, as more patients now pay for services and providers face increasingly complex regulations and requirements related to clinical information exchange," said Philip Hardin. "The solutions we have integrated into Emdeon Office address these changes with intuitive technology."

For providers seeking to qualify for monetary incentives as outlined in the HITECH Act, Emdeon Office Suite offers electronic health record (EHR) capabilities compliant with Stage 1 Meaningful Use criteria. Emdeon Clinician(TM), part of the Emdeon Office Suite, is a certified EHR Lite* that combines day-to-day administrative health information exchange with electronic lab ordering, results distribution and ePrescribing.

Providers may utilize Emdeon Office's statement automation services to outsource processing, printing and mailing of patient statements. Designed to work seamlessly within the Emdeon Office Suite, statement automation reduces the time, labor and costs involved in preparing and issuing invoices and automates the handling of returned mail and updating mailing addresses.

Additionally, Emdeon Office now accommodates electronic patient payments through the Emdeon Patient Pay Online solution. Emdeon Office users may process credit and debit cards at the point-of-service, as well as provide patients with direct access to their account information through an online payment portal that enables patients to view balances and make payments conveniently 24/7.

Finally, Emdeon Office now offers even deeper end-to-end reporting and analytics viewable through its online portal and mobile apps for smartphones and tablet devices. Advanced reporting options give providers visibility of claims from submission through adjudication, updates regarding patient payments and current account statuses. Data can be called in summary or detail through customizable reports.

"With a range of practical solutions that aid in compliance and eliminate manual processes, we are helping to reduce reimbursement delays and simplify the business of healthcare so that providers get paid faster," said Philip Hardin.
